Tech Summit returns looking to ‘break paradigms’ in ’16
The Tech Summit 2016, the most important technological event in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, returns for its fourth edition under the theme “The Strategy is Delivery.”
To be held on June 7 at the Puerto Rico Convention Center, the event’s main objective will be to “break paradigms presenting the latest trends and technologies expected to revolutionize ways to provide government services more efficiently and improve the citizen’s experience,” organizers said.
“This year we want to focus the Tech Summit on improving the client’s and citizen’s experience. It is not enough to present the most advanced technologies but to focus on the process of execution with tangible results,” said Tech Summit event producer Eduardo Rivero.
“That’s why this year’s theme, ‘The Strategy is Delivery,’ is a challenge that we are presenting to commit ourselves to comprehend the needs and real circumstances of the user and bring efficient solutions that improve quality and user experience,” he said.
This year’s edition of the Tech Summit will feature a group of world-class speakers that will give conferences on cutting edge technological subjects. Among those who have already confirmed are Traci Walker y Erie Meyer from U.S. Digital Services, who will speak on how the development of new digital tools allows the effective redesign of government operations. On the subject of transportation, the Summit will host Uber’s Francisco Sordeo who will give a conference titled “Uber in Latin America, the sharing economy and the economic impact of the exchange platform.”
The Tech Summit will also feature Netflix Senior Vice-president Brian Holt who will expound the company’s success story and how the creation of dynamic digital content allows the user to immerse, interact, and enjoy the process at the time it captures attention in a natural way.
Other subjects to be presented at the event are the new investment fund trends for technology-based projects, digital solutions for the healthcare systems segment based on the Healthcare.gov case study, among others.
“The Tech Summit has been recognized for the past three years for uniting technology industry and government leaders to create an honest and transparent space for the exchange of ideas, taking into account the needs of citizens, public and private entities as well as the technology community, including its ‘hackers,’ said Tech Summit 2016 Advisory Committee President Giancarlo González.
This exchange environment helps to advance the “disruption” process of traditional models of offering services and make way for new technological trends that will make us a better society,” said González, who was also the current administration’s Chief Information Officer.
